mornin’ muffin

Open the freezer door & breakfast awaits:

No excuses for skipping breakfast!  These little ditties warm up in 30 seconds, are portable & assessable.  Tips for success:

  • find recipes where the ingredients are staples in your home
  • double the recipe with minimal extra work
  • use foldtop sandwich bags tied in knot for packaging

Two favorite recipes from the book Muffins by Elizabeth Alston:

  1. Brown Sugar Oatmeal Muffins  (shown above with blueberry spread)
  2. Banana Bran Muffins ~ favorite add-ins:  walnuts & golden raisins, or pecans & craisins

“I have many memories of waking up to eat breakfast that my mother carefully prepared for us & her saying, what do y’all want for lunch, & as we’re eating lunch, what do y’all want for dinner?  It’s always about the next meal.”  ~ Lisa Loeb

nice dice

Is it wrong to feel complete joy upon finding a container of diced veggies in the freezer?  Planned happiness can be found when adding a little extra chopping to “regular” cooking time to freeze & save for another day.

Hubbie, “What does that mean?”

Me (giggle), “What do you think it means?”

Hubbie, “I have no idea.”

Me, “It’s chopped up veggies ready for making soup!”

Hubbie, “So, there’s no chicken or noodles.”  (shakes head & laughs)
